Comedy in Chicago: The Canary in the Coal Mine

Tuesday, April 5 8:00pm at ComedySportz Chicago
Limited seats available – please RSVP

On this evening Dr. Gail Stern, the co-founder of Catharsis Productions will present "The Canary in the Coal Mine” for theatre owners, comedy club staff members, and other vital members of the Chicago improv and comedy community.

This is NOT your standard boring presentation about good and bad and pointing fingers. This is a highly entertaining, funny, inclusive hour where your mindset is challenged and your ideas about the culture of sexual harassment will be put to the test.

We hope you can join us. Together we can change this community for the better, the way we know best- by using our sense of humor.
